* This frequently happens with military officers in between major wars. A few notable examples from American history include UsefulNotes/AndrewJackson, who served as a messenger during the UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution while a teenager, then went on to become a General in the Main/WarOf1812. Quite a few junior officers got their first experience in the UsefulNotes/MexicanAmericanWar before going on to become prominent figures during the UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar, including Robert E. Lee and UsefulNotes/UlyssesSGrant. The same goes for the UsefulNotes/SpanishAmericanWar giving young officers experience for UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, including the commander of the American forces in UsefulNotes/WW1 General John "Black Jack" Pershing. World War I also served in this capacity for UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, giving officers like UsefulNotes/DwightDEisenhower (though he trained troops rather than seeing action himself in [=WW1=],) and [[FourStarBadass George S. Patton]].

**While ''Videogames/FireEmblemTheBlazingBlade'' came out a few years after ''Videogame/FireEmblemTheBindingBlade'', it's a prequel to Binding Blade, taking place nearly 20 years before. In Blazing Blade, we see Bartre as a [[HotBlooded hot-blooded]] [[BoisterousBruiser Boisterous Bruiser]] who is extremely [[BookDumb Book Dumb]] and [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Insensitive, though unknowingly]]. Come Binding Blade, he is [[ActionDad the father of Fir]], a myrmidon and is much more subdued, while still having some hotblood. He also grew a [[BadassMustache Badass Mustache]]

* Cornelius in ''WesternAnimation/{{Babar}}'' and the SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/BabarAndTheAdventuresOfBadou''is the oldest and wiser elephant in the cast and probably in the entire kingdom. Madam may also count as a female version.

* Zuko, Katara, and Toph all act as mentors to Korra at some point in WesternAnimation/LegendOfKorra. And as Roku did to Aang in the AvatarTheLastAirbender, an older Aang acts a spirit guide to Korra, since he is now the previous Avatar.

* Averted in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn]]'' in which the cast of Path of Radiance all make appearances as major characters and despite some maturity still have their own problems and issues to deal with.
** Finn and Oifey, from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Genealogy of the Holy War]]'', are straighter examples ; you had them in the first generation as young apprentices, in the second generation they are back as mentors to Leif and Nanna, and Seliph and the other children at Tirnanogue respectively. Shanan also serves as a mentor to Seliph as well his much younger cousins, Larcei and Ulster. Lewyn, who comes back as Seliph's strategist, also counts, though this may be because of his [[spoiler: [[BackFromTheDead resurrection]] and LaserGuidedAmnesia]]
** But played straight in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' where [[spoiler: Tiki, who was just a dragon child in VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia, reappears [[SheIsAllGrownUp as a dragon teen]] who takes up a mentor role towards Lucina and, in the DLC, her JuniorCounterpart Nowi. And [[MayflyDecemberRomance she can even be romanced by a male Avatar]].]]
